The TDWI BI Executive Summit is a unique and interactive knowledge-sharing event, packed with information about the latest strategies, techniques, and tools to get a handle on Big Data. IT and business leaders from various industries, with similar Big Data problems, can collaborate and network in workshops, case studies, panels, and breakout sessions.

“As organizations embrace Big Data Applications, the lines between data warehousing and operational databases are blurring,” said Gorbet. “Organizations increasingly want to move beyond offline analysis of extracted or summarized data to incorporating all relevant data in their business processes in real time. The volume, velocity, variety, and complexity of data they have to deal with today makes this particularly challenging, but with the right tools, organizations that manage to leverage their Big Data to run their operations are seeing significant competitive advantage.”
